The children have been thinking about their favourite part of day one of the residential.
Kai said “I really liked the archery because it was very fun and competitive”. Harris agreed, “I like the part when the instructor said ‘loss’ and all the arrows flew through the air”.
Fergus stated, “the abseiling was the best part of day one because the feeling of jumping off the top was exciting”.
Isabelle also enjoyed the abseiling and was proud of her achievement of completing the challenge.
Charlie W thought that bush craft was his favourite as “your could fetch things from the forest and made some shelters”. Simon, the instructor, poured water over the shelters. “Ours was the best” claims Charlie W, “it was big enough for three people”.
Grace described dinner to be “delicious, I even had seconds” and the children really enjoyed meeting the staff who were from Italy and South Korea.
After an exciting first day the children are ready for more challenges today, canoeing is up first with both groups going out on the river together.
